The Surplus Library‘s collection consists of books relevant to the topic of affect and economic exchange.
In redefining the concept of a physical library, The Surplus Library On Affect & Economic Exchange operates on the basic assumption that its specific collection of books already exists in the material world: in the homes and private collections of countless individuals. Some of the holdings of this vast and distributed library can become known and accessible through The Surplus Library Web site.

Contemporary Art Archipelago 2011
“Contemporary Art Archipelago sets out to explore this archipelago condition with a focus on the Turku Archipelago, Finland. Over twenty new art works by invited international and local artists reflect on the future of this area of more than twenty thousand islands reaching out from the south-western coast of Finland.

Embedded in the Baltic, known as the most polluted sea in the world, this region offers a case study that deeply resonates, in particular, with the necessity to find sustainable modes of coexistence. This requires reaching beyond the confines and comforts of individual islands, whether geopolitical locations or disciplinary fields of knowledge.
